Wikileaks Statement on the 9 Month Anniversary of Cablegate: Release of 133,887 Cables

Wikileaks Statement on the 9 Month Anniversary of Cablegate: Release of 133,887 Cables | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

"Stories of the recently released material is being shared on twitter under the #wlfind hashtag. The site www.cablegatesearch.net is a powerful tool for those scouring the cables: it enables keyword searches for over 140,000 released cables. This page also has a ‘comments’ field where readers can share research and valuable contextual knowledge regarding the cables, as well as link cables across themes and countries. Crowdsourcing allows for the significance of the material to grow organically: along with readers’ geographical diversity comes a diversification of subject matters and a plurality of angles."
Crowdsourcing is not at odds with journalism. WikiLeaks has witnessed how the #wlfind hashtag has led to stories being published in the mainstream press. The crowdsourcing of the bulk of the cables will assist journalists to sift through the tens if not hundreds of thousands of cables relating to the contemporary history of their own region. Readers are discovering that even the media organisations with the most resources, WikiLeaks’ original partners, do not have the capacity to sift through all the cables nor report on all the big stories. It is a shared responsibility, then, for citizens, journalists, and researchers to comb through the material and find its local and global significance. Those stories that established media organisations are unable or unwilling to report on due to fear of being sued, or conflict of interest, or both, should nevertheless be in the public domain and available for everyone to access. "

Jon Slattery: UK riots: Should journalists just be bystanders? The role of Public Journalism explored | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

An article in the latest issue of Press Gazette asks what's journalism's job in the aftermath of last months riots?

The question is posed by Kevin Marsh, the former editor of the Today programme and of the BBC College of Journalism. He writes: "Is it good enough for us to say it's not our job to help solve problems? That all we do is report, call to account, point out the problems and opine?

"Can we imagine a world where journalists aren't just bystanders? Where it's our responsibility, as it is of other citizens , to help society go well?"
